Interstellar Trader 2 is a fast playing economic strategy game that's perfect for breaks between the marathon gaming sessions of Dominions 2 or Space Empires IV. The sequel to 2000's game of the same name, gameplay has been tweaked in response to the thousands of requests and ideas that came from the fans of the original. Now Interstellar Trader 2 is everything you loved about the first game, and more.

The basic concept remains the same. You're the owner of a start-up galactic merchant business. Like any good merchant, space based or rooted firmly on terra firma, you want to make money. Lots of it. Unfortunately standing in your way is a fickle marketplace, spacefaring pirates (arrrgh!), and a host of random events. No one ever said being an interstellar trader was an easy job, now did they?

In your quest to retire both rich and healthy you'll have plenty of choices to make. As you hop from planet to planet, buying and selling your goods, you'll be able to upgrade your vessel (or even purchase a brand new one). Protect yourself from pirates with escort ships, or buy contracts from the weasel prime ministers that will provide you with a respite from attack. You'll even get a chance to try your luck at the Galactic Casino.

Though rich in possibilities gameplay is quite easy to grasp-a simple system that isn't simplistic. Games also play out relatively quick, making Interstellar Trader 2 one of the more deeper "coffee break" games you'll play.
